Junior Boogie is the professional name of California bluesman Jeremy Heinemann. A staple of the Sonoma music scene, the harmonica player has played with some of the biggest names in Blues and Rock & Roll. He performed for many years as a founding member of the popular Rockbottom Blues band. In 2007 he embarked on a solo career. As both a band member and band leader, he has shared the stage with legends like The Doobie Brothers, Los Lobos, Dick Dale, Robert Cray, Taj Mahal, and Gregg Rolie.
“Wingo Moon” is the brand new album from Junior Boogie, released worldwide to all major streaming services on December 20, 2021. The ten song collection finds the singer and his band collaborating with a number of fellow veterans of the Sonoma scene including; Lucas Domingue of T-Luke and the Tight Suits, Beau Bradbury of the California Honeydrops and engineer/producer Matt McDavid of Sanctuary Sound Studio. They were joined by Sean Schena (bass), Grant Harrington (guitar), Cliff Zyskowski (keys), and Alex Garcia (saxophone).
“Put the Bait on the Line” is the lead track and current single from Junior Boogie’s ‘Wingo Moon.’ An ensemble consisting of electric and acoustic guitars, bass and drums back up Jeremy as he delivers a fun New Orleans-flavored 12-bar ‘goin fishin’ Blues. The track has a great live, organic groove recorded with a fantastic natural room sound. It’s a fun tune, and at the heart of the party is Junior Boogie and his smokin’ Blues harp.
